Rangers will lead the group in songs, skits and stories to celebrate the legacy of John Muir, one of the greatest conservationists the United States has ever known.
Meet at the front gate of the John Muir National Historic Site, 4202 Alhambra Ave, in Martinez, CA (at the Alhambra Ave. exit off Highway 4). Bring the whole family, picnic blankets, lawn chairs, and a desire to have a good time. Rangers will direct you from the gate to the fire ring, which will be under a small grove of redwood trees. If it rains heavily, the program will be canceled.
If you have any questions, please call the John Muir National Historic Site at 925-228-8860.
